The 3 Best Ways to Monitor Your Business Entrances

It is easy to become a target for crime if the access points of your business are not secure. Ensuring that your premises has at least one form of security system to deter intruders and monitor who comes in and out is the first step to securing your building. At Advance Security, we offer a range of intruder alarms, access control systems and CCTV systems for businesses throughout Cambridge and East Anglia, and are experts at installing both alarms and security cameras to help you keep an eye on your premises 24/7.

1. Integrate Access Control

Monitoring who has access to your premises can be difficult, even for smaller business. Integrating a secure access control system such as a keypad or ID swipe card entry system allows you to monitor exactly who is in your building, what time they enter and leave, and prevents unauthorised access.

Assigning roles to individuals also ensures that internal access is only granted to those who need it, meaning that even if an intruder gained access to your property, they would not be able to enter more high-security areas without a suitable ID card.


Security cameras installed strategically to cover multiple angles of your building’s access points are another great way to deter intruders. The presence of visible CCTV on your premises helps to deter criminals, and by monitoring your access points you can see who is entering and exiting your building in real time, making identification much easier.

3. Intruder Alarms

Setting up intruder alarm systems to monitor your premises out-of-hours gives you peace of mind that your property is protected when you’re not there. Securing your windows and doors with sensitive proximity alarms with real-time alerts sent straight to your smartphone or PC ensure that in the event of a break-in, you’ll know the exact entry point and can respond to the situation quickly.

Using these tips, you can rest assured that the entrance points to your property are secure and protected from intruders.
